While there seems to be harmony between men and women when it comes to doing something, the battle of the sexes is far from over; at least subconsciously. The female population was once thought of only as homemakers while the male population brought home the bacon. Today, there is emphasis on what the Spice Girls called “girl power”, boosting the self-confidence of women to show men that they can stand on equal ground with the opposite sex. The good part is that women have proven themselves more worthy than men in some fields. The bad part is that women are now exposed to more stressors as men are, since they still have their ‘homemaker’ gene in them.
After coming home from a stressful day at the office, women will feel the need to take care of the house; preparing food, doing chores, tucking the kids into bed, waiting for their spouses or boyfriends to come home, etc. For women, there is usually “work after work”. Their emotional nature also leaves them more prone to the stress of strained relationships or would think too much about the problems of others. This ongoing stress, as always, will lead to worse things if nothing is done about it.
Stress needs to be managed for the sake of the sanity of both men and women. For those women new to stress, they may think that what they’re going through is normal and will pass. When their symptoms start to bother them, they wouldn’t know where to begin in terms of looking for stress management techniques.
